'Business' Area : Buy/Sell/Trade / Re: WTB: NTSC NES, frontloader

Unfortunately the PAL NES can't be modded to display NTSC games in their full glory, being 60Hz. That's why I 'need' to have a NTSC NES.

I know, Ebay has lots of them, but prices are pretty high and shipping is a dealkiller anyway. 

The NES must be working 100% and with at least one NTSC NES controller. With or without power adapter, box not needed either and cosmetic state is also less important. I just want to play games the NES will not be on display.  ;D

Who can help me to get an avordable one?
what about a japanese one. The Famicom av is really nice, Rgb moddable.
small and far more affordable than ugly us version.
look after yamatoku sales on ebay.

through google translate :

The whole japanese company story is worth the reading.
Relations between Capcom and Irem at that time...

Wasn't Vigilante supposed to be Spartan X / Kung fu Master Sequel ?

Such an awesome cab! Must be quite cool when 4 people are playing at once.

i found it really good in the one player mode.. but total confusing when playing with 4. :)
could be me of course. :D
shooters are solo challenging games. 1 credit, one run : die and retry.

I hope to try that darius very soon !  ;D

OH - MY - GOD !!!

already love it !  :-*

lovely adverts, so eighties.  :-*

thanks for sharing Andre.


PC Engines range of models is a real mess...

JP version

PC Engine, CoregrafX, CoreGrafX II

First is white and then becomes anthracite black.
first output video with antenna RF. The others composite.
These plays japanese Hu card.

1989 : SuperGrafx

enhanced version of pc engine with a bunch of dedicated games (7 games)
it remains compatible with hu card.

PC-Engine Duo, Duo R, Duo RX :
PC engine with cd rom.
Only slight differences between them (Duo is black, Duo R is white, RX comes with 6 button pad)
Can read obviously Hu card and CD rom2 games.

US Version

TurboGrafx - For US market

dedicated Hucard, not compatible with JP version.

It also exists TurboGrafx CD rom version, there's a crual lack of game.

Main problem with PC engine is their composite output.
In France the importator (sodipeng) did RGB modification for the inner market.

The RGB cable also included a RGB signals amplifier before arriving on scart.
Sodipeng is then a de facto DIN pinout standard.
Some models can be found on ebay with similar modifications.

CD Rom can be burnt CD-R.
I did buy the everdrive mentioned before. Works as it should.

I own a Duo RX version (from last year). It is RGB modded but also has a US/JP HU card switch.
it comes from
I didn't buy to him, I am the second owner after.
I also can't garantee trust with this seller.

RGB Mod :

SoDiPeng cable (with RGB amplifier) :

You can also buy some tool that allows RGB output without modding :

or tools and parts :

I hope it helps...


arghhh, this one is new in the line :

is there any wip on this ?


that IO / board issue wasn't easy to point out. Thank god for existence of living sega encyclopedia like Andy.  ;D

On paper I wouldn't have bet on a flat screen conversion, but it's good to see that it seems to rock once in place.

4/3 ratio rules !

Great to see this g-loc back on track !
love it...

Brillant work so far, Bruno.

Really looks like a real 80ies classic

love it  :-*

yes, nice cab indeed.

lots of informations about the team development and irem at that time,
so it focus on the pre metal slug games. Joel was in touch with the develepers,
so he got secrets and anecdotes.

It's absolutely not about the game play (or how to play the game), it's better : It's history :)

can't wait for part 2.

crazy to see all that dedicated monsters upstairs  :shock:

as Tyrem said, just insane...

I'm using an Everdrive so I can copy roms to the sd card and pick from a menu when I boot up the cab. It's only got Parasol Stars on it at the moment  ;)

interesting! pc engine everdrive - is it this one?

i'm using it too, very usefull tool.
